All Black's last minute win over Wallabies

From Morning Report, 7:28 am on 16 September 2022

A try scored by Jordie Barrett with time expired secured the All Blacks a thrilling 39-37 victory over the Wallabies in Melbourne last night.

New Zealand had given up a 19-point lead midway through the second half to trail by three points heading into the closing seconds.

But a contentious refereeing call gave the All Blacks the ball with less than a minute remaining, and they capitalised.

The result means New Zealand's hold on the Bledisloe Cup will stretch to 20 years, regardless of what happens in next week's return test at Eden Park.
